Akshay Kumar is gearing for the release of his film ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’. The movie that also stars Bhumi Pednekar is all about the banes of open defecation and it can only be solved by building toilets. Recently the film was rumoured to have been allotted 8 cuts by the Censor Board.
As per DNA, The Censor Board has allotted eight verbal cuts before the film was cleared with U/A certification, The cuts included editing out certain dialogues too. Along with it four cuss words too have been edited out.
Now Akshay Kumar has opened up on the subject and confirmed that the Censor Board has allotted 3 cuts to his film not eight. Akshay Kumar on Wednesday said that his new film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was cleared by the Censor Board with only three cuts and not eight.
The 49-year-old actor was reacting to such reports and told news agency IANS: “I have read news that the film has got eight or nine cuts from the censor board, but this is wrong. We have got three verbal cuts in the film.”
He further added that, “I remember one of the cuts clearly. They asked us to remove the word ‘h*r**mi’ and there two more verbal cuts. I don’t know from where this news comes that the film has got 8 cuts. I was surprised myself,”
Compared to Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’, who is fighting the 48 cuts. The makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha have had it easy.
‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Divyendu Sharma and Anupam Kher. It is scheduled to release this Friday.
